    I’m sure Easton is going to release another 12” fireflex that’s not an exclusive...

    Hearing that Ressy model is a 12.5" with specs & design etc that was all player input from the major team. Why 12.5 > 12 I have no idea.

    I don't care for all the exclusives. I'm thinking about visiting them as long as I can get a twelve inch barrel in their main line.

    If that ends up being the case we may need to help each other out in the near future.

    I can coordinate help for the EL smu from here.

    The exchange rate will make me suck it up and swing the ugly version of the Bal though. Cause if I calculate the exclusive and exchange rate plus ship I can probably buy 2 bats from retail line in Canada ffs.

    The knob on the Baker looks like the goofy half-domed knob that Demarini uses on a bunch of their bats. Not a fan at all. I like the small knob that Easton has used for years. I may seem like I'm nitpicking, but I consider myself to be somewhat of a knob snob. That's actually my stage name.

    Baker looks like a gaudy Miken/Worth exclusive at a glance, the bottom one is quite possibly the most hideous bat I've ever seen.

    Looks like the design departments got one of those 64 count Crayola boxes with the sharpener in the back

    Why the Demarini style knob change? Best thing about Easton bats, other than durability, is that small knob they use.

    Bryson Baker puts down his signature model every year for a 12" barrel endload. It was the original Torq a few years ago, the purple team exclusive, Helmer Flex last year... I think the only reason his sig bat was always a 13.5" balanced was because Helmer and Kirby had the 12" signature models. Now with Kirby allegedly retiring...

    Yeah this was the 1st year Baker swung his signature bat. He's always used the endload models

    Is Fulk swinging the Fire Flex @ 1:27:30? I thought it was a New breed at first.

    Went to a demo day over the weekend and got a chance to swing a couple of the new eastons. Blue Line was definitely my favorite of the bunch. They had some prototype bats they were testing there as well. They had a 10 and 11 Inch barrel prototype. There were no stamps on them but they were in the ASA cages with the 52 balls

    10 inch barrel with 1.5oz EL would be a dream
